It’s the 21st century, and society’s lust for violence is satisfied by the “Big Hunt,” an international game of human hunts—basically legalized murder. The winner of each round is awarded a prize, and the survivor after 10 rounds wins a million dollars and great fame. When the American huntress Caroline Meredith (Andress) completes her ninth round killing a victim in New York, she comes to Rome to hunt her 10th victim, Marcello Poletti (Mastroianni). But when these two—the sport’s top assassins—are pitted against each other, they find that love is the most dangerous game of all. As the world watches, the hunt is on. Who will become The 10th Victim?
